Can Your "Donate Now" Button Get You Into Trouble?

If you solicit contributions -- even passively, via the "Donate Now" button on your Website -- you are subject to state requirements on charity registration. Violating those requirements can result in fines, IRS problems, and reputation damage. This article by Venable LLP, a law firm with a large nonprofit practice, will help you navigate compliance requirements -- https://www.venable.com/does-my-nonprofit-really-have-to-register-before-asking-for-money-07-11-2018/

Also, remember that as a VIS member, you are entitled to a substantial discount from our partner, Simple Charity Registration.
